Join the always entertaining Bruce Tiffney, Professor of Earth Sciences at UCSB and expert in the field of evolutionary botany, for a look at how land plants stretch on a rack between the soil-bound resources of water and nutrients, and the siren call of photons to create tall plants. There are, however, more ways of achieving height. Come learn a little plant anatomy and some interesting factoids about how plants have evolved to capture light and address gravity, both in the present day and through the past.
